After 3 DUIs, Oregon town mayor resigns

AURORA — The mayor of an Oregon town is resigning following his third intoxicated driving arrest in nine years.

The Oregonian reported that 57-year-old Gregory Max Taylor stepped down last Monday from the mayor's chair in Aurora, a town of about 1,000 people south of Portland.

The Aurora City Council is scheduled to appoint a new mayor Thursday.

Taylor wrote in a letter, "Due to personal concerns beyond my control it has become necessary to resign my position as mayor effective immediately."

Aurora city recorder Kelly Richardson says Taylor was appointed mayor in September 2011 after the previous mayor resigned because he was moving away. Taylor was elected to a two-year term in November 2012.
